Unfortunately most of the smart watch devices on the market do not meet design and aesthetic needs for women. The good news is that wearable tech companies intend to correct this. But in the meantime here is a list of the Top 5 Smart Jewels on the market today. Yes, I said Jewels!
“MICA,” or “My Intelligent Communication Accessory,” is both bejeweled and digitally enhanced. MICA features a curved sapphire glass touchscreen display and comes in two versions—one with a strap of black watersnake skin and adorned with Chinese freshwater pearls and Malagasy lapis, while the other sports a band made of white watersnake skin and is accented by tiger’s eye gems sourced from South Africa and Russian obsidian.
The best part, it’s untethered, that means you can leave your phone at home for an evening out and still get text messages and alerts to the bracelet’s 1.6-inch OLED screen, handily hidden on the inside of the cuff.

‘The Ibis is the most innovative design-led approach to the smart watch industry where fashion engineering is important. Ibis is designed to be ‘wearable jewelry’ and is made using stainless steel and crystal. The firm says the design was inspired by a flying bird whose wing tips touch together while carrying a young bird on its back, symbolizing the precious and personal current of information on your smart watch. The Ibis will be able to display notifications, text messages and calls from your mobile device. It isn’t on the market yet, but it is worth notating.
Cuff from Deepa Sood, who – in true Silicon Valley fashion – developed the device in her garage with her kids and a 3D printer. Cuff isn’t just one piece of wearable tech—it’s real jewelry that allows users to send and receive discreet, customized alerts enabled through a smart phone app. The interchangeable tech devices also have the ability to send out emergency alerts to a predetermined network (including the wearer’s GPS location), track fitness or buzz when, say, the babysitter calls.
Fitbit tracks steps, distance, calories burned, active minutes and sleep and is currently the most popular activity tracking device on the market. And now the most beautiful thanks to designer Tory Burch. The American designer has brought her signature style to these open, gold-plated pieces – necklaces and bracelets make up the range.
MOTO Smart Ring
Rated the most innovative product, the MOTA Smart Ring allows you to receive updates for calls, texts, and social media with vibrations from your finger, currently the Moto Ring is available in elegant shades of onyx and ivory. The only way this could get any better is if it included fitness tracking. Here’s hoping!
